5 Exotic fruits that I like;
My list is not that exotic. I haven’t that adventurous gene which some people have. They travel to exotic locations and try the local delicacies. I am going with the fruits that I love and can be considered exotic by some standards;
In my country, we pride ourselves that our mangoes are the best in the world. They come in many varieties and are available for all of the summer season. I love that the different varieties of mango all have their distinct flavor, ranging from very sweet to slightly tangy and some are meaty and others are more fibrous.
This is a hybrid fruit and carries the goodness of oranges and tanginess of more sour citrus, nanrangi. It is a wonderfully flavored juicy citrus that lasts us all winter and well into spring.
Fresh coconut is a treat to eat. There is a lot of hype about coconut water but I like the fruit better, myself. It makes marvelous smoothies and Pinacolada!
Another fruit common in the tropical region. It has a smooth flavor and a very nice taste. It really tastes very nice on its own but also is great with a combination of other tropical fruits like mangoes.
We get pomegranate at the start of winters. I like the red ones better than the very sweet white variety. It makes a very nutritious juice too.
